Integrity and Trust

This week has really been quite interesting. It has felt a bit like I have been bombarded by the same message from my Spirit Guides. And waking up very early this morning I just realised that I need to share this with you. So here goes….

I do a lot of Spirit Guide readings for people. A Spirit Guide reading is basically me connecting with your Guides and finding out who they are, what they are doing on your team, what messages they have for you and a bunch of other cool things.

I absolutely love this reading, there is such a beautiful feeling of bliss connecting with them and finding out what they have to say to the people I am reading for. They are such amazing Souls, and they have chosen you, you all decided together that they would assist you in this life time and that is what makes it even more special. So they totally have your back and they are invested in your spiritual growth here on Mother Earth. Nothing is random, it is all planned and agreed.

So people are always asking me how to connect with their Guides.  And how do they know that this is really their Guides ‘talking’ to them?

Well, I myself struggled with this for a very long time.  I have spent most of my spiritual journey questioning myself and obsessing about this thing that we call ‘the ego’.  Almost looking at this like the little devil on my shoulder trying to trip me up all the time, making things difficult for me. It has taken me a very long time to start trusting what I am feeling and thinking and hearing. And then this week it hit me, well, my Guides made it super clear to me that I have to, have to stop thinking that this stuff that comes up in my head is my ego speaking to me. But how, we have been so conditioned to believe that this evil thing called ‘the ego’ is trying to lead us on the wrong path. Well, it comes down to this:  I live my life with integrity, as a rule I do things that are in my best interest and in the best interest of the people around me, I generally try and be the best person that I can be. So based on this if you live a life of integrity and you are trying your best why would what you are thinking and feeling not be in your best interest, why would you need to question what you are thinking and feeling?  Well, for me that was a pretty good question, and I really had nothing to dispute it with. So my conclusion after all this thinking was that I don’t need to doubt any of what comes up in this whacky head of mine. My ideas, my thoughts all of this is guided by my pure intentions and if my intentions are pure then the thoughts and ideas are pure. And ideas and thoughts come from different places, they come from me, my higher self and my Guides. All three of us have my best interest at heart. So what I have to do is keep my intentions in check, I have to make sure that as I am moving through each day that I think positive thoughts, that I do things that uplift myself and others and then what do I have to doubt.

So now that I have explained that little bit, lets talk about how to connect with your Guides. I generally find that quieting my mind is the place to start. I find that 15 mins of being quiet and trying to still my busy mind really helps, also during the day make sure that you don’t get consumed by your busy brain, planning every second and running around without being mindful. Slow down and start listening. If you don’t make time to listen then you won’t hear them talking. Find a quiet space, ask your question that you need guidance on – make sure you breath for a couple of minutes and quiet your mind and then see what comes up, what are you feeling in your body, what are you hearing, what are you smelling, what are you tasting and then see what comes up for you. Don’t doubt that first thought that comes up, if those intentions are pure I promise you it is not your ego chatting.

Start also looking for synchronicities – it you are forever seeing the same bird or animal, get onto Google and check what they mean, if you see the same numbers or colours all round you, get onto Google and check it out. If you get into the car and switch on the radio and the words of the song has extra meaning for you and stand out, have a think about that, I have had many message come to me that way.

So start finding some quiet time and space for yourself and embark on this magical journey.

The Week 30 – Death By Public Speaking

I just love how things work in my life.
So I really think my Guides have an evil sense of humor. If you have read some of my previous blog posts through the year you would have read about my debilitating fear of speaking in public. Something that I have carried with me since school. Weirdly enough I had no issue performing in various stage plays as a character of sorts, but the minute I have to stand up and speak as me I just want to die. Shortness of breath starts, my heart races and if I could throw up I probably would.

So in the last 8 months or so I have really been put through the ringer by the Universe. Firstly end of last year I was asked to do a radio interview about my Akashic Record work, this luckily I survived – no death by speaking in public there. Then I was asked to do a few workshops on the Akashic Records, again survived it and actually really enjoyed it – and no death by speaking in public there either. And then yesterday I had to do a presentation on the Akashic Records to a room full of people. Actually standing up in front of a projector and speak….. I mean really!!!

And yes, I don’t say no to these opportunities, because I know that I need to get over myself and I know that every time you do this it gets easier. But still I live in absolute dread up until the moment I have to get up there and talk. I can’t tell you how much I meditated, spoke to my Guides, called on the Archangels and Ascended Masters and asked all of them very, very nicely to make me survive this talk.

And yes, I did not die, I did not throw up or pass out from lack of breath. I did it, I was scared as nuts when I started. I was super nervous but eventually I started calming down and I survived it all. And I loved it, it was so absolutely wonderful to share my knowledge with the people, to share my passion with them and to teach them something new.

Overall it was a lovely morning, the people I presented to was also lovely and very supportive so that really helped a load.

So I won’t stop saying yes to these huge challenges that the Universe throws my way, I will probably keep being scared, but at least next time I will be a little less scared.  So keep it coming guys, I am ready for it!

Much love

The Week 29 – Lemonade anyone?

A week of lemons

So wow, I am not even sure where to begin.  I have just gotten back from a two week trip – a trip into nature, a trip that left me so in love with the world and the calmness that I experience when I am far away in the bush with people that I love and animals and birds roaming free. Driving back, myself and Rob were all Zen about life and about how amazing everything is and how privileged we are to be able to spend time in nature on such a regular basis. It is really an uplifting experience.

Then we arrived back home and it was as if the Universe went – well seeing that you had 14 days of no worries or stress (mainly due to the lack of communication with anyone or anything – no cell reception YIPPEE) – let’s just pile this baby up for you and welcome you back to real life in a spectacular fashion. And so the proverbial ‘popo’ hit the fan in so many areas of life, I had to actually sit myself down this week and find space to breath…..  From things around the house breaking, to people messing up in HUGE ways and a bunch of other human related issues. I mean really!!!!

Yes, I know I am suppose to be all calm about it and not freak out, but wowzers!

So today I spent a huge amount of time meditating, talking to my Guides and generally just calming myself down to a flat panic.  And to be honest, it actually works.  I am now walking around like a total monk.  My insides are calm, my solar plexus is free of that bunched up feeling (like you want to throw up – you know that one?).

I had to also laugh this week as twice in one morning I received cards that has to do with taking the lemons and making lemonade. So the thing is to sometimes listen, I even looked out the window and saw the lemons hanging on the tree outside – so there you go! It is good for me and the sour lovely taste will make me smile.

So I am off to go and make some lemonade….  and yes this weird meditation and connecting with your Guides stuff really works, and it really works for me, so thank goodness for that.

From a much calmer me – have a fantastic week and keep breathing (it really helps!).

 

Much love
